Certification and Operation of Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance to assist persons in obtaining and maintaining Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification of an Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS). This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. This AC describes acceptable means, but not the only means, to meet the requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR). However, if you choose to follow this AC as the means to meet the provisions of 14 CFR part 147, then you must follow the AC in its entirety. New content in AC 147-3B will provide part 147 AMTS applicants and currently certificated AMTSs with information concerning comprehensive detail of AMTS operations to include Distance Learning and Operations Specifications (OpSpec) informational guidance for industry.
